tional Action, r
.' Mra; B. C Preston and .Henry St
Raynr, an attorney, . war mad th
defendant In a sensational suit filed In
the circuit court this morning by Mar
garet T. Shorey, in which It Is alleged
that th two defendants rMrs. Preston
being a former friend of the plaintiff
had conspired to defraud the plaintiff
out of valuablo property In the city.
Mra Shorey, who is M. cripple, alleges
that she was the owner of two-fifths

a debt owed by J. T.- Shorey, It being
stipulated that when Shorey paid the
debt Trenkman waa to transfer the deed
to- the Oreaon Trust aV Savings bank
as trustee for the Shoreys. , . '
Upon the failure of the bank snd
the appointment of a receiver, Mra.
Shorey says that Mra Preston said she
did not know what effect the condi
tion would have on the property rights
of the plaintiff, and suggested that St.
Raynor be sentfor. Mra Khorev did
this, according to her complaint, and
St. Rayner told her she waa being
swindled and that it was necessary for
her to transfer the property to Mra.
Preston, as Mrs. Shorey oould not pro
tect her rights.
Accordingly Mrs. Shorey states that
she signed a paper . which St. Rayner
told her was simply a matter of form,
Following thla Mrs. Shorey oonsulted
friends and then notified Bt Rayner In
wrjtlng' to do nothing In th caa until
he had received, order.

half ef Mrs, Preston for possession of
the property. Mra Shorey alleges thst
Mrs. Preston" and St Rayner procured
the assignment for their own benefit
and with the intent to defraud the
plaintiff. She auea for the cancellation
of the assignment ana was granted a
temporary Injunction returnable Sep
